That's not how I read the overall sentiment--people are simply saying that
they need this work done and are willing to put in the effort to get it
done.  It would, in fact, be ideal if some of the MMUSIC questions were
resolve *before* an RTCWEB/WEBRTC interim, as we can then work through what
is decided.

Put another way, I take it as encouragement to MMUSIC folks that they would
find a January virtual interim very well received/attended.
